Any legal questions are best handled by an attorney. I'm hoping you do have one who will be assisting you on the closing of this home. Realtors cannot provide legal advice. Please ask the expert in this area, your attorney. This is not necessarily a simple question and deserves a thorough understanding of the legal complexities surrounding litigation.
Wishing you the best!
